A GARDEN party held in memory of two women has helped raise £800 for charity.
The event, at Blythe Bridge, remembered Anne Ellis and Eirlys Jones who both died in 2016, leaving behind their life partners, father and son Bob and Jason Ellis.
The two men organised the first garden party in August last year and decided to host another fund-raiser on Saturday, June 16.
Bob Ellis, 77, from Blythe Bridge, was devastated when his wife, Anne, died in June 2016 aged 72.
In December of the same year, their son, Jason, 48 lost his partner of 27 years, Eirlys Jones at the age of just 48.
Last year, Bob decided to host a garden party in tribute to the two women and hoped to make another donation to the Air Ambulance funds.
